East Clandon  to  Walton Bridge  (12.45 miles)

 

We pass thru' the picturesque village of East Clandon, then thru' the Ryde Estate where we join the Fox Way and stay with it to Walsham Lock. Along lanes past Ockham to the historic village of Ripley. We follow a path across Ripley Green then turn left to join the River Wey Navigation at Walsham Lock. We follow the Wey, mainly surrounded by green open space and pasture, thru' West Byfleet, New Haw, Addlestone and Weybridge to Thames Lock. Our route then joins the Desborough Cut to finish on the River Thames at Walton Bridge. The route is mainly flat and can be muddy underfoot going thru' the Ryde Estate.
